The only good thing that came from being with my LOSER ex was me getting to know his best friend. Odd...yes...but in another world we might have been together. We connected on such a level that I never have been with anyone else. I was very sheltered before I met my ex (of 5 years)...and he was heavy into drugs...and I honestly had no clue until a year into the relationship...then I thought I could 'help' him...haha. His best friend was always there for me...and became one of my best friends too. He eventually joined the army...and got married to someone that he met online (after only 3 months)...they eventually got divorced...imagine that. He was very religious before I met him...then got involved with some drugs (not heavy like my ex)...and after his divorce he again became very religious. To the point of not talking to really anyone from his past. We've spoken on and off the past few years...but I truly miss him. Not in a being in love sort of way...but a really good friend. I text him happy b-day since it was his b-day today...and I know he doesn't celebrate it anymore (jehova witness)...but he called while I was in class to say thank you. I wish I could have picked up...and now he doesn't answer. blah...just feeling...blah... thanks for listening!
